Give A Gift of Music

What to get for that person who has everything?  Someone whose size you do not know or is hard to shop for?

How about a Gift of Music?

Give that someone a concert experience that cannot be had anywhere else but here in Seattle with our own Byron Schenkman.  A warm, lively, and engaging evening at the lovely Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall with Byron Schenkman & Friends and your friends is a wonderful way to spend a cold winter evening.

  1. If you know the specific concert experience you wish to give, call the Box Office (206) 215-4747 and order the tickets to be sent directly to the recipient or sent to you for wrapping and giving.
  2. If you are not sure which concert would be most appreciated, please send a note expressing your wishes to me, along with a check written to Byron Schenkman & Friends c/o Shunpike, at 1463 E. Republican St. #179, Seattle, WA   I will get a gift certificate in the mail to you, for wrapping and giving, or to the recipient post haste.

Concerts to choose from:

The “Dazzling Duo” (Nuvo Magazine) of Ingrid Matthews and Byron Schenkman lead us through some of the most brilliant sonatas for violin and harpsichord by Johann Sebastian Bach and Arcangelo Corelli.  Please click on Corelli to give the Bach & Corelli concert on Thursday, Dec 29, 2016.
